Writing Program

The Writing Across the Curriculum Program encourages the teaching of writing in courses in a variety of disciplines.  In courses designated Writing Intensive, students use writing as a means of learning course material, and study and practice writing that uses the conventions and expectations of a specific discipline.  Instructors ask students to produce some type of reflection activity, such as a draft of a paper, and hold individual conferences with the student to discuss it.
